I am thinking of getting either the A700L or the Evo but I can't decide which one I should get. I know the Evo has the new floating front gearbox but it's also a bit more expensive. I will only be racing in TC 17.5 blinky so would the A700L be good enough or is it worth spending the extra money on the Evo?

Either car would be great in stock. You can always upgrade an L to Evo too...

Josh really liked the Raceberry in mod on carpet. He took his car from the pre-worlds warm-up and ran it indoors with nearly zero setup changes ... and pulled off the win.

No one else I'm aware us has run the Raceberry indoors --- nor would I recommend it is stock on carpet.

New parts questions:

1) what is the #1 set (A700-#1)

2) what is the difference between C21 and C21-2?

3) can we have pictures of the "short FFG tower" (A700-AM49-3) that is supposed to be used with AM33-5 (long stiffener)? When using AM30-5, is it useful?

Thanks for answering

G-rem

C21-2, AM49-3 and AM33-5 info:

AM33-5 long stiffener provides the maximal longitudinal stiffness of chassis.
Long stiffener doesn't reduce the torsional flex in case of using only one or two center screws.
So the the flex will be the same as with short stiffener that is screwed by the same one-two center screws.
But AM33-5 increases the longitudinal stiffness noticeable ( it prevents the chassis against longitudinal bending). This is the main advantage of AM33-5 especially for such soft chassis as C01AL-S.
Maximum longitudinal stiffness combined with an adjustable torsional flex provided by the alu stiffener is a key of our latest chassis flex control method.

AM49-3 is screwed directly to AM33-5 long stiffener.
C21-2 is a bit stiffer version of C21 with 3,8mm center hole instead of 6mm hole. So you have to use ST09 collar inside of the center hole of top deck instead of 6mm shims.
C21-2 and AM33-5 have the additional holes for 4 positions of AM49-3.

Reading this thread reminds me of what C3PO's phone would look like if he texted R2D2. haha. Carry on!

It would be nice to have to have a conversion kit to modify al the "old" EVO's with the new parts such as the the updated FFG-1 parts, Ballcups P13-4, and maybe the soft chassis, top deck an stiffners AM30-5 and AM 33-5 and this for reasenable price..... of course )
